Vice President Kashim Shettima has called on leaders in the country to renew their commitment to serving the people as government strives to address the prevailing challenges confronting Nigerians.

Shettima, who made the appeal at the 38th anniversary of the Shiekh Ibrahim Niass Alkaulakhy National Maulid yesterday in Abuja, said the celebration called for renewal of commitment to service by leaders at all levels.

In his address titled, ‘Serving Humanity, the vice president said the event was “an invitation to renew commitment to embody the spirit of serving humanity.”

The VP, who also spoke on the teachings of the Holy Prophet and the responsibility of leaders, said the intersection of faith leaders and political leaders was a sacred space where the responsibilities of service converged.

According to him, every leader is driven by a profound sense of duty, noting that “each of us strives to promote the welfare of the people we serve. This is the essence of our shared purpose.

He stressed that, “Whether in times of celebration or challenge, the unity of the leaders of any group becomes a powerful force for positive change. It is within this intersection that we find a common ground to identify with our people’s aspirations, joys and struggles.

“More than mere collaboration, it is a testimony to our collective stewardship. So, again, we are grateful for your hospitality and honour.”

Senator Shettima appealed to the faithful of the major religious groups in the country to always “engage in tangible efforts to understand one another.

“More than ever, we appeal to you to remain the voices of reason in bridging the gaps between knowledge and ignorance, between reality and mischief. To honour the legacy of Rasul, sincerely, we must fulfill the noble injunction of being the best of people by bringing the maximum benefit,” he said.
